2022 Young Judges Competition

NPS Main Branch will be hosting their annual Young Judges Competition on the afternoon of Monday 1st August 2022 at the start of the Summer Championship Show.


This competition is split into two sections Riding Pony/Hunter Pony (RP/HP) and Mountain & Moorland (M&M), it’s divided into 3 age groups under 13, 14-18, and 19-25.


The competition is run on similar lines to the Young Farmers Competitions with the overall winner being given the opportunity to accompany a most prestigious judge whilst they judge the Price Family In-Hand Horse of the Year Show qualifier on Wednesday 3rd August 2022!


Each Area can nominate up to eight potential Young Judges to go forward to the competition. This can be two teams of 4, 1 x RP/HP and 1 x M&M or any combination of up to 8 persons.


Preparations for this year’s competition will start next week by zoom, but you can join at any point leading up to the competition if there are spaces. We are having zoom meetings, shadowing judges and ringside discussions at our Area Show on Sunday 22nd May. Plus, 1-2-1’s and if viable visits to studs/producer yards.
